Started first grade in Miami Florida, finished w/Barbara Bogue in Timpson, started second in Timpson with Beatrice Clifton, finished 2nd grade on Hahn AFB in Germany, went to 3rd in Germany, 4th grade was started in Timpson with Mrs. Irene Horton and finished in Lawton OK started 5th grade in OK and finished in Huntsville, AL.
6th grade was started and finished with one of my favorite teachers, Ms. Clyde Bussey at Timpson elementary. Jr High was split between Central Heights and Timpson. I attended all 4 years of high school at Timpson High. I competed in UIL Math, was a THS Cheerleader my JR year, and graduated with honors in May of 1977.

I am very proud of my husband, Paul Smith and son Michael Smith. We, along with friend and colleague Dustin Norris, have grown our local business Smith Sawmill Service to 3 locations and over 100 employees. We will always call Timpson, TX our home office. Adding offices, warehouse space and manufacturing in Shreveport, LA and Polkton, NC has really added to our footprint in the wood industry. We appreciate every employee and customer that has helped in our journey.
